Find out about inclusive table tennis sessions and courses, either as an organiser or participant.
We believe that table tennis is a sport that can be played and enjoyed by everyone, regardless of age, sex, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.
No one should be excluded from sport and physical activity, which is why we created some guidance documents on making your table tennis club, session, venue or environment more inclusive for everyone – including some coaching tips – as well as some case studies on examples of good practice. These can be found at the bottom of this page.
